Sports Massage

A sports massage is a style of massage designed to improve athletic performance and prevent injuries. This kind of therapeutic massage considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups. Moreover the conscious focus of sports massage therapy maximizes the benefit of certain massage techniques and supports further physical exertion and activity.

 

Our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) here at MYo Lab help athletes at all levels prepare for training, competition, and recovery. You don’t have to be an Olympian to enjoy the benefits of a sports massage. If you’re physically active for fun, stress relief, or to maintain your muscle mass and bone density, you likely don’t need the same specialized treatment as a competitive athlete.

 

Although, you’ll still feel better by treating aches, pains, knots, and muscle tightness—which is what RMTs are trained to do. Your massage therapist will take a sports-massage approach to your treatment, so you can maintain your active lifestyle, injury-free. This may include stretching tight muscles, stimulating inactive muscles, and reducing muscle tension.
